You teach through hands-on learning for a long-lasting impact. Why not take your own strategies and learn by doing, trying, and playing with the many educational technology solutions at your fingertips? TCEA’s 2022 Robert Knight Exhibit Hall is back, in person in February, to do just that.
Connect with Your Partners in Education
Your partners are eager to see you again, face-to-face, after two years. Join them and meet new contacts to build relationships and learn about the latest solutions and equipment. But did I mention the giveaways, trinkets, games, and perks? TCEA exhibitors are sure to wow you during the Exhibit Hall Grand Opening Tuesday, February 8 at 2 p.m. They’ll be rolling out the red carpet and sharing their unique solutions in fun ways. As an added bonus, each day will feature dedicated exhibit hall hours, so you don’t have to choose between visiting the exhibit hall and attending a learning session. Discover who is waiting to partner with you in 2022 here.
Esports in Action
On the exhibit hall floor, there will be esports. Yes, that’s right! Thanks to CDW-G, TCEA will be bringing back its esports experience. This space will feature local student teams in a friendly competition showcasing Rocket League, soccer with vehicles. These students will share the opportunities an esports program provides to them, the advantages, and the career possibilities. This same space will feature sessions focused on esports and a chance for you to get first-hand experience by trying it out. Before you get your hands on esports, learn why your students need esports opportunities, the benefits of esports in the classroom, and how to get started here.
A Bus? Absolutely!
The exhibit hall doesn’t just showcase companies, but it showcases organizations like your own. One of those showcased will be Van ISD’s STEAM Bus! This 43-foot makerspace on wheels features PreK-12 learning for numerous STEAM disciplines. Van ISD’s students spend an hour engaged in problem-based learning through hands-on experience, and you can too on the exhibit hall floor. Not only will Van ISD share how this bus works in their district, but they will also provide a chance for you to bring the STEAM bus to your school. Learn more and connect with the Van ISD team here.
If you haven’t registered, it’s not too late! TCEA 2022 is a place for every educator, and we’d love to see you there– exploring the exhibit hall, enjoying the learning sessions, and connecting with other educators. See you in February!
